Details about builds:

 spamass-milter-0.3.2-3.el4 (FEDORA-EPEL-2011-4252)
 Milter (mail filter) for spamassassin
Update Information:

This change is to help systems with Postfix handle mail from authenticated users better.

Postfix doesn't support Sendmail's {auth_ssf} macro and this was causing the milter not to give any indication to SpamAssassin that mail from an authenticated user was trusted; the update enhances the milter to use the {auth_authen} macro (supported by both Postfix and Sendmail) to identify authenticated users to SpamAssassin, which then treats the mail as being from a trusted source. Of course the -I option (off by default) can still be used to get the milter to accept mail from authenticated users straight away without passing it through SpamAssassin if preferred.

The update also drops the wrapper script that restarts the milter if it crashes; the wrapper hasn't been necessary since version 0.3.1 when its reliability improved significantly.

Finally, this update adds support for whitelisting of IPv6 networks in addition to the existing support for IPv4 networks.
